Threads of Destiny (Crossing Fates, #1) by Lea Roches



My rating:  3.9  of  5  stars

(by Goodreads)

Eva Stanis has moved across country from the East Coast to the city of Westport, hoping to put her home city and ex-fiancé behind her. But she is still a Morai, a twister of fates, and must face the fact her new city has its own community of her kind and their own rules.

For Eva, while love is something even someone like her can find unexpectedly, danger is also something not even a weaver of fates can avoid; because, sometimes love and danger come woven together on the same thread…


Genre(s):  (Urban) Fantasy, Paranormal, Romance

Series:  Crossing Fates, #1

Length:  38 pages

Release Date:  2015-11-17



It took her five interviews to get hired for an entry-level position at an internet graphics company called Shuttersphere. Eva only tweaked her threads a little to land the job. It wasn’t anything grand or high paying, and she was qalified. She told herself a little fate twisting wouldn’t do any harm.


My Opinion

This book introduces you to Eva Stanis, having left the East Coast and her former fiancé behind to begin a new life.

With Threads of Destiny, Lea Roches has created the promising start of a series about a Morai – a twister of fates. Eva’s gift or destiny to see all fates is not unique, there are more Morais like her, occasionally with different moral standards, adhering to different rules. As it is a rather short story, I cannot tell you more without spoiling your fun of reading this book yourself. I had a good time reading Threads of Destiny – it is an enjoyable read. I was drawn into the story as an invisible bystander, waiting for the opportunity to read more of the series.

This is for you if you like urban fantasy, paranormal stories and a touch of romance.

The first book in a promising series.

In brief:

Writing Good
Plot Some twists
Mood Suspenseful, dark
Pace Steady
Characters Developed
Violence No violence
Sexual content No sexual content (some hints)
POV Third person
